Continuing Professional Development

The GDPR requires data protection professionals to maintain their knowledge on an ongoing basis. Therefore, the Examination Board has stipulated that candidates are required to complete one designated training course per year after the first anniversary of successfully completing their qualification. Designated training courses are listed in the online FAQs. Distance Learning candidates will be able to complete the designated courses on a distance learning basis.
